I met Tina Haupert many moons ago at a Bertolli event in NYC. We were sitting at the same table and she was SUCH a pleasure. When I found out her URL was http://carrotsncake.com I almost fell on the floor. What an AWESOME NAME! We need a little of both in our life, right?

A few days ago I had the opportunity to check out her new cookbook (AHHHH) and I am so excited because not only is it a GREAT READ but it’s from a bloggy buddy who I simply adore.

Carrots ‘N’ Cake: Healthy Living One Carrot and Cupcake at a Time‘ is all about balance – which we all so desperately need! Yes, it’s perfectly fine to indulge in the yummy and decadent, but we need to be sure to have a few veggies on that menu as well. Some of my favorite recipes include:

  • Stove Top Oatmeal with Wheat Berries
  • Zucchini and Chickpea Salad
  • Pumpkin Muffins
  • Fresh Onion Dip
  • Double Chocolate Tea Cakes
  • Vanilla Cappuccino
  • Almond Butter Stuffed French Toast
  • Vanilla Mini Cupcakes

Besides having a NUMBER of doable and easy to follow recipes, Tina also offers up advice about fitness routines, food tips, and details on how to get ‘Cookie Friday’ started! Sign me up! 😉
